AbstractIn many bird species, return rates tend to be greatest in the vicinity of their hatching site, thus natal philopatry is an important trait in avian demography. In the present study, we examined how conditions in natal nests affect return rates and dispersal distances of a long-distance migratory passerine. From 2008 to 2016, we studied a colour-ringed population of the Great Reed Warbler Acrocephalus arundinaceus breeding in southeastern Czech Republic. Almost 10% of the 1430 ringed… CONTINUE READING
